      Rather, his writing is clean and active, rich with imagery. I've experienced it. In the end, the story is a remarkable one. The emerging plant life helped support the introduction of birds to Surtsey; they began nesting a mere three years after the end of the eruptions.

      In the book, it is difficult to find much love. With help from her family and neighbors, Lola learns that the Island will always be with her. At 33 kilometers south of the mainland, it also marked the new southernmost point of Iceland. We grew up with grandparents who often bring an entirely different world. It is one of those books that was hard to put down. Little do the two friends know that after surviving hundreds of dives and developing the closest of bonds, forces outside their control will push their friendship to the breaking point.

      Discuss the ways in which female relationships are depicted and the important role they play on Jeju. In the end, the story is a remarkable one. My only disappointment in the book was that it ended, and rather abruptly in my opinion. But the idea that you could live a life with books -- this librarian gave that to me as a gift. Representation matters.
